  • If it meant my children eating versus not eating, I don't think there is ANYTHING I wouldn't do. Obviously I would do anything I could think of BEFORE prostitution... even theft if I had to, but you can't steal housing, and I'll be damned if my kids have to shiver in the cold without a roof over their heads.

  • Communications tower operator. Ok, so the guys who have to free-cimb a 1700 foot pole to work on the top. I saw a vido recently of what those guys do, and I am WAY TOO AFRAID of heights for that one! My knees jiggled just watching the video!

  • Well there are many jobs I can't do. I'm female and, um, not young. I couldn't be anything that requires much physical strength. I never understood enough politics or economics to be successful at those. I am good at tutoring math and science, though.

    I love Dirty Jobs and while I wouldn't want to, after raising babies/toddlers/kids, I have a strong enough stomach to do almost anything.

  • Prostitution is out. Not ever gonna happen. I'd go on assistance first and try for something better. If it meant taking care of my family though, almost any legal job out there is fair game to me. I'll make myself work in a sewer if that's all I could get.
